When a total shoulder arthroplasty is performed, restoration of the anatomy to near normal is important in order to achieve a stable implant. So as not to sacrifice stability, it is not uncommon for soft tissues to be either over tightened or insufficiently released. This article analyzes the various factors to consider in order to obtain appropriate soft-tissue balancing for a successful total shoulder arthroplasty.
